not already exist. NHS England and NHS Improvement Goals of care The treatment of patients suffering from coronavirus may be orientated towards: • • • Supportive measures – for example, provision of fluids and/or oxygen. Targeted treatment – for example, provision of antibiotics to treat pneumonia. Organ support – for example, ventilator support, renal replacement therapy, etc. These are aimed at preserving and prolonging life. It is important to remember that most people with coronavirus will survive (...) supportive treatments and management of their comorbidities has been optimised. The good practice approach to symptom management is as follows: • Correct the correctable, for example, give the patient antibiotics for a bacterial infection. • Non-drug approaches, especially in mild to moderate disease – see Appendix 1. 3 | Clinical guide for the management of palliative care in secondary care during the coronavirus pandemic, Version 1 • Drug approaches – see Appendix 1.

[ ] [ ] . In cases of severe disease, additional pressure and ventilatory support may be required, including intubation [ ] . To optimize first-pass success, intubation should be performed by the most experienced provider, with the fewest possible number of health care providers exposed in the room. Antibiotics are not recommended to treat cases of COVID-19 without clinical suspicion of bacterial co-infection. Early studies in China found the rate of secondary bacterial infection to be low. However, when (...) there is evidence for a secondary infection, appropriate antibiotics should be administered pre-emptively, without waiting for confirmatory test results. For sepsis, treat with an IV third-generation cephalosporin, such as cefotaxime (50 mg/kg/dose every 6 h, to a maximum 2 g/dose or 8 g/day), or IV ceftriaxone (75 mg/kg/dose every 12 to 24 h, to a maximum 4 g/day), with the addition of IV vancomycin (15 mg/kg/dose every 6 h, to a maximum 500 mg/dose) for severe disease.
